MicroFutures Advantage

Why Micro Futures are the Ideal Instrument for Small Account Diversification:

There are several reasons to consider adding Micro Futures trading to your strategy portfolio:

  • Smaller margins. Micro Futures contracts are 1/10th the size of a full futures contract. That means margins are 90% lower! This allows you to cover multiple markets with a relatively low account balance.
  • Multiple markets. Since the margin requirements are low, you are able to cover several key markets. This reduces overall account risk.
  • Non-correlated markets. Prices on stocks, commodities, currencies and interest rates move in different ways. When you trade non-correlated markets, your equity curve is smoother.
  • Hedging advantages. Positions in stocks and equity options are subject to losses when the market moves against you. Futures trading provides a hedge against this kind of adverse move.

The CME currently offers Micro Futures on the following markets: Gold (the first Micro)- Silver– ES – NQ-YM-RTY- Euro- Yen plus a few other contracts but the above are the most liquid and better suited for trading at this moment.
